The Dark Ages of the medieval times had come up with disoriented ideas for music. They used to associate music with witches and since witches were burnt alive out of fear, music was bound to be condemned. However, this cloud over the sunshine could not hide the sun's brightness and when it lifted, its shine was brighter and more warming than ever before.
Music was then associated with royal blood. Several emperors and kings organised tournaments where the rising musicians of the land came to compete; the winner was honored beyond anything and he was given a lot of wealth to continue his musician's prowess. These tournaments not only encouraged the musicians, but also helped in increasing music's popularity around the globe.
Music is not only limited to singing and dancing. There are several musical instruments, which when played in an organised and precise manner, produce various tones and musical notes. These instruments are divided into four broad categories- woodwind, strings, brass, and percussion.
